KENGIDO - KENGIDO - Training Room Journal!

Since the completion of the 20th anniversary performance, Kagebido has been practicing mainly the basics.


At yesterday's adult session, the practice began with suridashi, followed by teame, then wooden sword, followed by furikomi, and finally ended with kata.


This steady training creates clear movements with solid frame layout and continuity, and creates impact, which is the foundation for brilliant swordsmanship.


On the other hand, in the children's section, they practiced the sword dance "Michi" which was the last piece in the 20th anniversary performance.
Even adults struggled with the difficult performance, but did their best.


At first glance, the sword dance may seem glamorous and difficult, but the essence of swordsmanship that has been accumulated over the years has been integrated into it, and it is truly a technique that tests the power of the fundamentals.


After learning the basics and challenging themselves to perform, they realize the importance of the basics once again and go back to the basics.


In swordsmanship, all training and techniques are connected, and there may be no distinction between beginners and experts, or between adults and children.

I want to get better! We all want to be good at what we do.


Both adults and children practice daily to become better than they are now, even if only a little.


So, we will do our best in today's intermediate and advanced classes!
